Tangerine Moon

Jolanta was born in London, of Polish/British parents, her earliest memories being of frozen lakes & trains travelling through the forests of Poland.
She crossed the Atlantic Ocean by ship, docking in Cape Town shortly before her 3rd birthday.
The songs on her latest album are largely allegorical, resonating with the sounds of the sea, echoes of Europe and an African heartbeat.
